Ombudsman Commission Offices Still Closed Despite Payments Made

The Ombudsman Commission says over K900,000 has been paid to Nasfund in office rentals.

But, they don’t know when they’ll be moving back into the office, as there are still outstanding water and electricity bills.

The Ombudsman Commission held a media conference today at a hotel.
They’ve been locked out of their office for the last two days.

The Finance department has not paid their rent until today. The bills date back to August last year.

“The Finance department has paid Nasfund K975,000 last Friday,” says, Acting Chief Obudsman.

They still owe Nasfund a significant amount of money.

The watchdog is handling cases of national interest without an office.

“There are still some reconciliation of records between Finance department and Nasfund to verify if there is no double payment,” says the acting Chief Ombudsman.

The Lae office still remains on lockdown for the same reason. Offices in Mt Hagen, Bougainville and Kokopo remain open.

As the Ombudsman Commission staff wait in anticipation of a return to normal duties, preparations are underway for the swearing in of the next Chief Ombudsman Commissioner tomorrow, at Government House.
